South African post-metal band Constellatia are releasing their official music video from »Empyrean« which can now be viewed via the official Season Of Mist YouTube channel. »Empyrean« is taken from the full-album »The Language Of Limbs« which was released via Season Of Mist on the 19th of June 2020.

A personal note from Constellatia’s Keenan Oakes: “I remember us wanting to write a very basic song, structurally speaking, so it takes on the verse/chorus/verse/chorus/bridge/chorus form; a pop song in essence. Thematically, »Empyrean« is about obsession and ecstasy, about unrelenting passion and being consumed by it all. The bridge is a musical highlight for us as a band so far, one of the special moments from »The Language Of Limbs«. It feels good to close the chapter on this first incarnation, and to look ahead to the future and more music!”

But there’s more! On the 15th of August 2022 Season Of Mist will officially reveal the album title, cover artwork and release date of the brand new Constellatia album.

Their previous album »The Language Of Limbs« was originally released on November 15, 2019 and soon after, the four-piece landed a worldwide record deal with Season Of Mist. The pressings are available in various formats HERE.

Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Constellatia is the collaborative vision of Gideon Lamprecht and Keenan Oakes, founders of well-known acts Crow Black Sky and Wildernessking respectively.

»The Language Of Limbs« is essentially a post-metal record with black metal and progressive influences, and a healthy dose of ambience and atmosphere; always deeply engaging with a flair for the romantic and nostalgic. “It is a record that came from a place of desperation; a musical outlet for the years of hardship both members endured in their personal lives.” Gideon Lamprecht comments. “It’s an album about obsession and overcoming. It’s a triumphant record.” adds Keenan Oakes.

Formed in September 2018, and enlisting the talents of a few key collaborators, Constellatia soon completed work on the beautiful and emotional ride that is »The Language Of Limbs«. While the drums (played by Lawrence Jaeger) and vocals were engineered by Daniel Thackwray at City Varsity, Cape Town, all other instruments were recorded by Lamprecht at his home studio in Glencairn, where he also mixed and mastered »The Language Of Limbs«. The album features additional and high class guest vocalists, namely Alison Rachel of Honeymoan and renowned singer/songwriter Lucy Kruger, and is an absolute must-have for fans of Cult Of Luna, Opeth, Pink Floyd or Wolves In The Throne Room.

Constellatia is:
Adam Hill – Rhythm Guitar
Gideon Lamprecht – Lead Guitar
Keenan Oakes – Bass, Vocals
Lawrence Jaeger – Drums
